Big Issue North – Volunteer With UsComments Off
Volunteer with us
Would you like to volunteer with Big Issue North and help us make a difference to the lives of the people selling Big Issue North magazine?
Big Issue North is sold by a range of people including people new to the country and people who speak English as a second language. 93% of people who speak English as a second language and sell Big Issue North say that selling the magazine helps them improve their English.
We’re looking for volunteers who speak Romanian and English who can work with us as interpreters and translators helping to ensure we give a first class service to vendors who speak English as a second language.
As a volunteer, your role would include translating written materials and working with staff and vendors at regular drop-in sessions, interpreting, translating and clarifying conversations where needed.
In return for your time we’ll cover the costs of your travel, will ensure you receive appropriate training and will celebrate the contribution you make at our annual Volunteer’s Celebration.
If this sounds like something you’d like to do – whether you can spare a few hours a week or a full day – please complete the volunteer application form. We’re looking for volunteers in our Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool offices.
